UPDATE #1 – Fear and Loathing – : ‘The Citadel: Gun-Loving Americans Signing Up to Live in Idaho Fortress Community’

iii arms

Do you have to join a group to be a patriotic American? Does not joining make you less patriotic?

Which defination of ‘American Exceptionalsim’ do they follow? Our religious  exceptionalism? Our military exceptionalism? Our consumer capitalism exceptionalism?

Liberty as defined by our Founding Fathers is our Constitution.

Interesting you must sign a pledge to your fellow ‘full time’ residents but not to the United States Of America.

Yes. There are so many hurricanes in the middle of Idaho so the focus will be on finances and skills to be usefull and employable after an economic collapse.

Or not……
#1 – ‘exceptions for absences’. You are ‘free’ but not to leave without premission?

#2 – ‘Every able-bodied Patriot aged 13 and older governed by this Agreement shall annually demonstrate proficiency with the rifle’.

#3 – ‘Every able-bodied Patriot aged 13 and older governed by this Agreement shall annually demonstrate proficiency with a handgun’.

#4 – ‘Every able-bodied Patriot of age within the Citadel will maintain one AR15 variant in 5.56mm NATO, at least 5 magazines and 1,000 rounds of ammunition’.
‘Every able-bodied Patriot will be responsible for maintaining a Tactical Go Bag or Muster Kit to satisfy the Minuteman concept’.

#7 – ‘Every child attending Citadel schools — with parental discretion for maturity — shall have as part of every semester’s class curriculum basic marksmanship and firearms safety training leading to the proficiency test on the child’s 13th birthday as a “Coming of Age” rite of passage’. ‘Children attending schools beyond the Citadel, or home-schooled, are required to meet the same proficiency standards at age 13’.

#8 – ‘All Patriots, who are of age and are not legally restricted from bearing firearms, shall agree to remain armed with a loaded sidearm whenever visiting the Citadel Town Center. Firearm shall be on-the-person and under the control of the Resident, not merely stored in a vehicle’.

What is wrong with the Republican Party – Bobby Jindal For President in 2016! – ‘Louisiana Governor’s New Plan Would Raise Taxes On Bottom 80 Percent Of Residents’

poor pay for tax cuts

Gov. Butch Otter in Idaho unveiled the same plan. Both States are also ‘welfare’ States, getting back more in federtal money then they send.

‘Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R) recently rolled out a plan to replace his state’s personal income and corporate taxes with an increased sales tax. Such a move would shift taxes from the rich to the poor, who are disproportionately hit by the sales tax’.

‘According to an analysis by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, Jindal’s plan will raise taxes on the bottom 80 percent of Louisianians, while cutting them for the richest 1 percent’ :

– The bottom 80 percent of Louisianans in the income distribution would see a tax increase from repealing the personal and corporate income taxes and replacing them with a higher sales tax.

– ‘The largest beneficiaries of the tax proposal would be the top 1 percent—a group with an average income
of well over $1 million. Louisianans in the top 1 percent would see an average tax cut of $25,423, or 2.3 percent of their income under the plan described above’.

– ‘The poorest 20 percent of taxpayers, those with an average income of $12,000, would see an average tax
increase of $395, or 3.4 percent of their income’.

– The middle 20 percent, those with an average income of $43,000, would see an average tax increase of $534, or 1.2 percent of their income’.

NRA Gun Nuts Out Of Control – ‘NRA’s New Ad Calls Obama “Elitist Hypocrite” For Having Secret Service Protection For His Children’

An that protect is what Congress enacted.

When a person or organization has to divert attention AWAY from their argument, you know what they believe can’t be defended.

Debate assault weapons ban.

Debate large capacity clips ban.

Debate background checks.

Debate data bases.

 

 

UPDATE : NRA Guns Out Of Control – ”NRA: Practice Range’ App Released for Ages 12 and Up’

NRA practice range

‘NRA Executive Director Wayne LaPierre has argued since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings that video games and movies are to blame for the culture of violence in the United States’.

“There exists in this country, sadly, a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells and stows violence against its own people, through vicious, violent video games with names like ‘Bullet Storm,’ ‘Grand Theft Auto,’ ‘Mortal Combat,’ and ‘Splatterhouse,’ ” LaPierre said at a press conference on Dec. 21′.

For those not able to understand simple relationships – the NRA has an app for your phone that lets you shoot at targets shaped like coffins.

But that’s NOT a ‘a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells and stows violence against its own people, through vicious, violent video game’.

‘The app, which is available for the iPhone and iPad was created by MEDL Mobile, and is described in Apple’s App Store as an “Official NRA Licensed Product.”

‘The National Rifle Association (NRA) has released a “Practice Range” Shooting App for iOS, according to Apple’s App Store description’.

‘The app combines the NRA’s facts and educational materials with a 3-D shooting game, which, according to the description, “instills safe and responsible ownership through fun challenges and realistic simulations.”

‘The game was first released in the App Store on Sunday, Jan. 13 for children ages 4 and up; the description of the app was updated on Tuesday, Jan. 15 to reflect that it was rated for ages 12 and up’.

Stories From The Fringe – ‘Coulter: “If you compare white populations, we have the same murder rate as Belgium”

ann coultier

Actually that’s completely false.

‘In a nutshell: Coulter is right, about Belgium — and only Belgium – and only for 1 year – but wrong about the rest of western Europe, which has a lot lower murder rate than even our “white” murder rate’.

‘The figures add up if you happen to choose the murder rate in Belgium in 2002 when there were 318 murders there, a big jump on the 215 in 2000 and 228 in 2003’.

‘Belgium is a small country and so an extra hundred or so murders a year adds a whole percentage point to the murder rate’.

‘The average murder rate in Belgium was 2.2 per 100,000 between 2000 and 2010 and 3.1 in 2002’.

‘The US murder rate over the same period was 5.5, more than twice the rate in Belgium’.

‘Had Ann Coulter looked at other (western) European countries, besides Belgium – the countries most like the US – she would have found a much lower overall murder rate per 100,000. For example (and these are rough back-of-the-envelope averages over the same time period)’:

US ‘whites only’ murder rate: 2.6
Denamark 1.0
Ireland 1.2
Norway 0.8
Sweden 0.9
Greece 1.4
Italy 1.4
Spain 1.2
Austria 0.8
France 1.7
Germany 1.2
Switzerland 1.0

‘Now you know why Ann Coulter picked Belgium’.

‘ Even the US’ ‘whites only’ murder rate is two to three times the murder rate in western Europe’.

‘So not only does Coulter’s weird comparison leave us with a big ‘so what?’, but her comparison on its face is wrong because she — and here’s a surprise — skewed the facts to her favor’.

What is wrong with the Republican Party – ‘House Republicans Can’t Find Any Co-Sponsors For Their Latest Obamacare Repeal Bills’

crazy bachmann

What’s wrong is the people they elect to represent them.

‘House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) so-called “Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act” had a total of 182 cosponsors by the fourth day of the 112th Congress, and House Republicans successfully voted to repeal Obamacare a staggering 33 times during the last session — costing taxpayers an approximate $50 million’.

‘In a sign that the GOP’s anti-Obamacare fervor may finally be giving way to political reality, Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-MN) latest Obamacare repeal bill doesn’t have a single co-sponsor in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives. Bachmann made introducing the repeal bill her first order of business for the 113th Congress, even as millions of Americans waited for House Republicans to act on a disaster relief package in the wake of Hurricane Sandy’.
